CAEGS - Visiting Fellowships
The Center for Advanced European-Global Studies builds on the rich tradition of research on Europe at the University of Basel and complements it with a global perspective on Europe. In three interconnected research areas, located in the fields of law, economics and society, the center conducts globally-oriented research on Europe and its transcultural entanglements. The institute's research approach is multidisciplinary and methodologically diverse in order to cross the borders of established disciplines and to initiate and support fundamental research. Special attention is paid to the processes of Europe's transcultural interconnections with Africa and Asia.Fellows will benefit from the excellent work conditions at the Center for Advanced European-Global Studies and from academic exchange with international colleagues. They will find both the freedom and the inspiration necessary to work on a research project that is hard to realize under the conditions of everyday academic life. We welcome applications from researchers who are working on a project that fits into the general research perspective of the center (as outlined above) and at the same time transcends the conventions of the field in a productive and inspiring way. We also encourage applications from researchers in the kick-off phase of a new project as the center can offer longer-term project hosting opportunities.
